strange little beastie scurrying around, very rapidly, in the sand between the grass clumps on a sparsely vegetated railway reserve; fast moving so had to be trapped in a cut off 2 lt coke bottle for photographing. Is it deformed? [answer NO, this is what Moleromans look like] if so, it certainly didn't hamper its mobility, and what about those armaments - the 2nd and 3rd legs have rows of pink vicious-looking spines ventrally and laterally while the palps end in a whole cluster of spines, like mace heads. I think in the 2nd photo there is a thin first leg just visible below the righthand palp
